Low Karatage

Prakash Karat is putting on an ideological brave face now (“...Bad eggs in the party will be removed”, Jul 27). The CPI(M) has of late been doing a rethink on its “historic blunder” of nixing Jyoti Basu’s PM chances. Witness their pre-poll pronouncements—they kept wavering on the “PM candidate” and “outside support” issues. Karat evidently was entertaining a few thoughts! Pinarayi Vijayan’s role would have been crucial in such a project as he is the one who can mobilise resources. It’s no surprise that he’s still in while the Kerala CM got the short end of the stick. If Pinarayi talks, the entire ideological citadel would have collapsed. Karat cannot fool the people anymore.

The Congress is owned by the Nehru-Gandhi family while the CPI(M)’s bragging rights are with the Karats. They should at least weed out corruption.

Why does Karat shy off the main issue: that the CPI(M) cadre is no less corrupt than that of any other political outfit? It lacks character and has shown it will take power whichever way it can.

Considering his fatal mistakes leading to the Party's loss of face with the public, he should remove himself, to begin with.

Karat reminds me of sarcasms like - "a millionaire communist in Paris" - as pronounced by the protagonist in Tomas Alea's movie.

Not the money part - but the attitude fits well - elitist, too egoistic to admit any mistake, driveler, without sense of proportions, alienated from the mass.

CPI(M) is sinking and Karat's leadership is so suitable for that process.

Why is Karat not answering the amin question in a forth right manner and accepting that CPM cadre is no less corrupt than any other political outfit. It lack character and shown the greed for power wherever it could, whichever way it could.
Mr Karat, please own up the truth - CPM benefitted as much as Vijayan from the SNC lavalin scandal.

Parkash Karat is now making an ideological brave face. It is his ambition for Prime Minister Ship in case of hung assembly as all but a few predicted. The historical blunder of southern lobby of CPI M when they prevented Jyoti Basu from becoming the Prime Minister of India has make that hawks realized that they must bid for it. Any one who remembers the pre election statement may read between the lines. Statements of coming like that, this time congress support us, the Prime Minister candidate will be decided after results, and Mayawati is not our candidate for Prime Minister. A B Wardhan menacing the words with a pinning to earth force was sending more hints to the left plan. The P Vijayan role was crucial. The resources mobilized are for left bid for Prime Ministerial birth. So no surprise that Vijayan remains in and C M out. The exploitations of masses by CPM cadre in Bengal came out and if Vijayan opens his lips than the entire ideological facet will collapse. Who are bad eggs, Somnath Chatterjee, Achutanand or any other who dares to disagree? The Nuclear deal if a not only issue than what was issues which never rose in parliament? What is rational behind standing up with B J P which is more tilted to U S A the prime object of biased? Prakash Karat has delivered a fatal blow to party, but did not want to bear responsibility, so he is putting it on alleged opaque site to Indian people who despite the noble causes always sided with bourgeoisie brethren. No he can not fool any one now. He is unmasked and his ambition, biased and self seeking pride all come out bare and horrible.
